Basing my reaction on whether or not David Biro merited for life sentence, it applies that on one hand, being 16 is not an excuse to escape the penalty for murder. Basing on the body language from the conversation between Biro and Attorney. Biro tries to hide his guilty status by faking smiles and escapes saying why he killed innocent souls but critically looking at it confirms he is indeed the criminal and deserves punishment. On the other hand, if the judge would reconsider looking into the matter critically Biro would have escaped punishment. First being 16, Biro was a teenager possessing the not-fully-developed-frontal-lobe”. The not fully-developed-frontal-lobe makes most teenagers poor decision makers. Furthermore, the teenagers are eager to try out new ideas and thoughts without considering the implication it has either on themselves or people around them. Second, bad lack may have led Biro into committing murder. It can be argued that if Nancy had not seen Biro’s face then he would not be forced to kill him. Furthermore, if the stolen gun would have been bought Biro would not kill the family that easy and maybe he would have escaped the charges. Considering the case of his classmate who killed two before returning the weapon, possession of the weapon put Biro in a place ready for murder. All these factors combined should help free Biro. However, the rule of law stands and Biro is guilty.
